Thank you so much for making me look perfect! As a model I am very picky with how makeup artists do my makeup. However I was very impressed with Phoebe. She really knows what she is doing. I told her I had a long day of shooting ahead so she recommended I do the Airbrush foundation so I did and I absolutely loved it! I wish she could do my makeup like that everyday. The makeup wore great never fading or having to retouch never got oily! It was definetely the best. All of my photos looked perfect as far as the makeup went. Phoebe is very professional and highly recommended in my book. She is now my go to makeup artist for all my shoots. I am so glad my friend recommended her to me.

Excellent makeup artist. I hired her for Halloween and she came last minute and saved the day. I wanted the Queen of Dragons look from Game of Thrones and I thought she did a spot on job.

Amazing!!! Lily does such incredible work. Love the way my makeup turned out. And I felt really beautiful. I really wanted to look like myself, but the best version of myself. Lily definitely provided that. I would highly recommend her airbrush makeup. It looks fabulous and lasts through the entire day . She has an awesome calming presence to have around the morning of my photoshoot! My hair turned out beautiful as well and The curls lasted till the next day!

I like how Liz did my hair and airbrush makeup. I heard my guests complimenting me that i look like a princess 😂. She is very accommodating and friendly. She even gave me a lipstick because i only have a lip stain and that my red lipstick isn't a good match to my makeup. Liz went on the extra mile to do some hair spray for the groom and blush/contour for a guest (which is not included in the service we agreed upon). Thank you so much Liz! I'd be sure to book you again.

Christine did my makeup for my engagement shoot and wedding. She arrived in a timely manner and was a professional from start to finish. Prices are very comparable (if not better) than a lot of other pro makeup artists. Her make up is of great quality and I had the option of regular or airbrush. I let her choose for me and the makeup stayed fresh all day long. We made a very minor change for my wedding makeup, and she executed it flawlessly. I am very satisfied wit Christine's work and will use her again in the future. She is so good at what she does, I have already referred her to all those I know who are in need of makeup services.

Stephanie is an amazing makeup artist. Easy to work with, friendly and professional. She gave me the perfect look for my wedding day. I wanted a look that "looked like me" but with a touch of Glam!! As requested, Stephanie focused on my eyes and made me feel at ease wearing fake eyelashes as I had never worn them before. Stephanie was punctual and I highly recommend Stephanie for any occasion! Thank you Stephanie for helping make my wedding day FABULOUS..... YOU ROCK!!!!

Phoebe came earlier to set up, finish on time and very calm person. I got a lot of compliments on my hair and makeup. I live in the bay area and no time to come by her shop for a try out in San Diego. I trusted her.

Chrissy did my hair and makeup for my friend's wedding. She was prompt, prepared and professional. I enjoyed chatting with her for the 2 hours she spent doing my hair and meticulously applying my makeup. She listened to what I wanted and made certain I was happy with the results. I would definitely hire her again.

I have worked with Julie on multiple occasions over the last 10 years. She does an amazing job enhancing a person’s natural beauty. I love working with her because she is an extremely talented artist and is always professional. It really makes a difference when your makeup artist listens to what you want and understands the look you are going for- Julie nails it every time! She has traveled the world as a makeup artist and is one of the top artists in our nation, I feel so fortunate to have such an amazing makeup artist here in San Diego! She is passionate about her artistry and really cares about perfecting each clients look! She always makes us feel so beautiful. Julie goes above and beyond. She has always does a fantastic job with my makeup over the last decade and always uses quality products. I highly recommend her for any event!

Cindy was able to drive out to my house, arrived on time and with a great attitude to do my make up for graduation. Not only was she professional throughout the entire time, but she communicated what she envisioned for my make up and made sure that i felt comfortable and was pleased with the outcome. I love that she really focused on highlighting and extenuating my facial features with her work. She did especially amazing with facial coverage, eyebrows, and making sure my makeup blended well so as to not look “cakey”. I definitely recommend her!

Amazing work on my hair and makeup. I’m EXTREMELY picky And very particular about how other people do my hair and make up. Often times I don’t like people to do it for me and I like to just do it myself but I trust Meztli to do it just the way I ask. Give her a shot you won’t be disappointed!

Tammie did an awesome job on my make-up for a wedding party that I was in. She was on time and her quality of work looked great. She was very professional and did a great job matching my color. I have gone to other makeup artists even at the MAC counter and their work did not even compare to the quality that Tammie did for me. The colors she used looked so natural and she did a great job blending the colors together as well. I got nothing but compliments at my event and I would highly recommend Tammie to do anyone's makeup. The makeup even looked better in the photos, I was so impressed. I didn't even have to reapply or touch up my lipstick throughout the entire day. She is easy to work with, very accommodating, and I must say, is very talented. If you want to look beautiful for that special occasion you must see Tammie and she will hook you up!
